Codice prodotto: DTS8L-MONACO

All-in-one engineering tester for diagnostic and control functions of vehicle ECUs.


EOL (end of life): Giugno 2022
Prodotto sostitutivo: DTS.monaco (DTS 9)

DTS 8 Monaco covers the entire spectrum of vehicle diagnostics in the areas of engineering, testing and preparation of manufacturing tests. It can be adapted flexibly both for a whole range of different test tasks and for different user groups. You will be enabled to ensure that diagnostics works reliably.

Areas of Application

  • Development of diagnostic and control functions for ECUs
  • Function test and validation
  • Integration and system test
  • Preparation of test sequences for Manufacturing and Service
  • Analysis of returns and Quality Assurance

Flexibly Adaptable to the Relevant Task

DTS Monaco is part of the Diagnostic Tool Set product family and is based on the DTS Base System. Monaco stands for Modular Analyzer for Vehicle Communication. A clearly laid out start page enables simple and fast access to the functions required most frequently. The actual workspace is divided into two: one area with a fixed layout and one with layouts that you can toggle between. A status display below shows communication server messages. The various functions are realized using special, configurable interface elements. These "HMI Controls" can be arranged freely in the layouts in configuration mode and comprehensively configured.

Early Detection of Problems and Errors

In execution mode, a configured workspace can be “started”. In doing so individual functions can be started automatically and communication can be established in advance if so required. Self-generated test sequences enable both simple and very complex function tests. This makes it possible to detect, and remedy, communication problems and function errors at an early stage. Communication data and test results can be documented in entirety in the process.

Fast Results

For typical use scenarios predefined templates including an universal database for the OBD self-diagnosis as well as a protocol template for WWH-OBD are supplied. In Demonstration mode, all functions can be tested, even without an interface and a license, using a detailed example including simulation. Furthermore, the tool has a completely integrated OTX runtime for running complex test sequences in accordance with ISO 13209. An authoring tool for creating such OTX sequences can be started directly from DTS Monaco.



  • Testing communication
  • Analyzing data on bus
  • Examining ODX data vs. ECU
  • Reading/deleting error memory
  • Programming flash memory
  • Displaying measuring values
  • Parameterizing ECUs
  • Coding variants
  • Executing ECU routines
  • Testing OBD functions
  • Creating/executing test sequences
  • Identifying built-in ECUs


  • Reduced costs and familiarization time as DTS Monaco covers the functionality of several tools, previously separate: OBD scan tool, data and bus monitor
  • Fast results thanks to intuitive operation and preconfigured templates
  • Top quality thanks to early detection and remedy of communication problems and function errors
  • Highly effective thanks to flexible adaptability to various tasks
  • Communication data and test results can be fully documented
